By and large, almost any residential floor plan can be adapted to a log home, but there are substantial differences and considerations that need to be addressed. One such example is that of room dimensions as they relate to the diameter of the logs you will be utilizing. A custom handcrafted home made from 20" diameter logs will have a different footprint than one requiring 6" milled logs. If this is the first time you will be dealing with a log home manufacturer or architect, make sure you are comparing 'apples to apples' when discussing interior dimensions. If you want a room to be 14' wide, make certain that your designer knows that you want the interior of the room to have 14' of open clearance and not measured from the center of the corresponding logs. Using the example above, your 14' room could shrink to 12' if such presumptions are not understood.
Nothing left to the imagination _ 3D Rendering and floor planning offers you a better view of what your home or development will look like than drawings or a regular 2D floor plan. You will have access to a 360_degree panoramic view of each room and space. This means that you'll be able to work to ensure that your design is what you had imagined it would be. With a 2D plan it still requires some imagination to really understand how a space will work; 3D plans allow it to come to life, showing you how it will look at completion. With both 3D rendering and 3D floor planning you don't have to wait until completion, you will see the final product before you even start the build!
